Diána Póth (born 6 August 1981) is a Hungarian former competitive figure skater. She is a two-time Karl Schäfer Memorial silver medalist and a two-time Hungarian national champion. She also competed briefly for Austria.

Personal life[edit]

Póth was born on 6 August 1981 in Budapest, Hungary.[1] She moved to Austria in 2001 and returned to Hungary in October 2002.[2] Her mother is Austrian.[1] Her father was a hockey player.[3]

Póth is married to professional footballer Gábor Gyepes.

Career[edit]

Póth began figure skating at the age of four to combat her nerves. Her first coach was Tamara Téglássy, with whom she was most successful as a junior. After the 1998 Worlds Championships, where she finished 10th, she switched coaches and began to train with Andras Szaraz and Eszter Jurek.[3] Póth achieved her best result, 4th, at a European Championships in 1999.

Póth won two Hungarian national titles in 1999 and 2000. She competed in the Austrian Championships in 2002.

After a couple of injuries, Póth switched coaches again and began training with Jeranjak Ipakjan and Gurgen Vardanjan. In April 2007, Poth retired from competition. She began coaching at a Cardiff skating club. One of her students[who?] won the junior national championship.[which?][when?]
